10. The immortality of the soul
1. Human soul is immortal
The soul cannot die and will always exist. And that we know due to two reasons: because soul is incorruptilble and because it does not depend on the life of the body.
Incorruptible means that it cannot be decayed or corrupted. Death is the rotting or separation of human parts such as the body and the soul. The body corrupts because its physical and chemical elements are separated.
The soul is incorruptible because is simple and indivisible. It has no parts, then it cannot be rotted, or dissolved, or die.
Besides, the life of the soul does not depend on the life of the body, because it is spiritual.
JOHN: I reckon that men have the desire to life forever, with a perfect happiness and eternally too.
MARY: But we cannot have that perfect happiness in this life, thus we will be able to achieve it after we die and so the soul does not die.
JOHN: The body is made up of many parts such as blood, muscles and bones, and that is why it can be decomposed and die.
MARY: But the soul have not got parts and so it cannot be divided or die.
